USDA NIFA to Invest $12.7M in Sustainable Agroecosystems (A1451)

The Sustainable Agroecosystems (A1451) program area priority within the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative funds research projects that focus on the improvement of ecosystem health and output of ecosystem services in managed production systems — like croplands, forests and rangelands — that are currently under stress or at risk from climate change, pests, pathogens, invasive plants and increased environmental pressures. This program area priority calls for applied research that will advance scientific understanding of health functions, processes and management of sustainable agroecosystems. Projects will advance new approaches that significantly increase ecosystem health and resilience, particularly in response to climate change, along with the output or value of more than one ecosystem service.
